Released August 3, 2018 Announcement

Oklahoma is home to STACK, an active shale play located near the central portion of the state. Production levels are rising in this area, which is great news for oil producers, but they face a challenge: frac sand is required for the horizontal drilling process that produces their product, and the very best sand for the job, northern white sand, is located all the way up in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
